Trippin' in Aqua

I am participating in Season 4 of  Project Quilting over at Persimon Dreams. This weeks challenge was:

 
 
My Entry is called, Trippin' in Aqua.
 
Trippin' in Aqua, Around the World Pattern
 

Trippin' in Aqua was made in Dodge City, Kansas and is 48" x 48".

I've been sewing like a mad woman to get this finished.  I wasn't planning on a larger quilt, but as I made blocks, I fell in love. I only wish I had time to make it bigger. 


I was inspired by the quilt along over at www.flickr.com/groups/scrappytripalong/
It seems like everyone is joining up to make the Scrappy Trip Around the World with the tutorial over at Quiltville by Bonnie Hunter. http://quiltville.com/scrappytrips.shtml


My plan was to use my aqua scraps and incorporate the "Scrappy Trip Along" with this challenge. My mind was changed with the first block (when I fell in love),  and I decided to go with the trip around the world.
 

I quilted each trip around with the dual feed foot.  This was the first time I used polyester batting and found that it really made the quilting stand out.

Whew, That was a lot of sewing in less than a week. 


I need to quit work for more quilting time :^)
